Re: Smart streetlight? FFS, why?

Thank you for opening your mouth, and removing all doubt.

Smart street lights can do more than turn on or off.

They can also:

- Alert to electrical/mechanical problems (light will not come on for some reason)

- Change the color of the light (for celebrations, holidays, etc.)

- Be used to repeat other radio signals

- Provide outlets etc. for items such as cameras and signs

- Yada yada.

Now, guess what we're all thinking about you.
